In Guild Wars 2, what mount should you use?
It’s possible that Guild Wars 2 doesn’t have as many mounts as some other games, but it does have the best ones. These creatures don’t just make it faster to move; they also change how you approach each place in a fundamental way. In some MMOs, there were only two types of mounts: those that flew and those that walked on land.
There are a lot of different animals in Guild Wars 2 that feel very different from one another. On paper, both the Raptor and the Roller Beetle are land mounts, but they are very different from each other. Over the years, more of these beautiful animals have been added. Some are better than others, but they are all amazing.
A mount called the Griffon was hidden in the endgame of Path of Fire. Many people thought it was the first Legendary mount. This big bird can do a good wing-propelled jump on land, which makes it one of the best mounts for land. But what makes it really powerful is its ability to hover and, when used properly, its ability to get back to normal height. It made it look like you could fly, and for a while it was king of the air.
It’s this low on the list because the Skyscale came out soon after and made the Griffon almost useless. There are dragons that can fly faster than the Griffon, and getting a bird these days is just not worth it because they are so hard to find.
The Jackal (or Sand Jackal, since it’s made of sand) is Guild Wars 2‘s first mount that is only magical. It’s more like a construction than an animal. This thing can blink a short way forward, avoid enemy strikes, and use the sand portals that are spread out in the desert to find many hidden things.
The Jackal is useful in some situations, but it feels like it’s only used in Path of Fire material. It has trouble getting to places that even the Raptor can because it can’t jump or feel how high it is. The sand tunnels, which are a unique part of the game, haven’t been used in maps since the Path of Fire era.
However, the Skiff does work like a mount, even though it’s not really one. This thing can be called up from nowhere and has its own skill line. You can ride it. The cute little boat can carry up to five people and can be used for many things. It turns into a solid item for everyone in the party, so it can even be ridden while doing other things. People can also just sit where they want and work together to make the Skiff go very fast.
Obviously, it can only be used to cross water. It will never be better than the Skimmer, but End of Dragons users who don’t have the previous expansion can use it instead.
The Warclaw is hard to rank because it is the only mount that can do its content. There’s not much reason to unlock World vs. World if you never play it, other than to finish your collection. Yes, it is the best because you have no other choice if you do play it. It does, however, have some special abilities that make it a must-have for groups that want to stand out in the mists.
Just the speed at which it moves is enough to make it worth it in World vs. World, but this war machine can also pounce on enemies and help break down walls during a siege. No animal is better than the Warclaw when it’s in its element.
The Raptor was the first mount ever added to the game, and it was such a hit that players are now given it to them when they reach level ten. It might not seem like a big deal compared to the other creatures, but it is very reliable and easy to get to. Getting this mount doesn’t take much work, and if you don’t have time to get anything else, the Raptor makes you feel like you don’t need them.
Its jump range is easy to adjust for both long and short distances, and its attack motion plays pretty quickly. It does its job as the first mount, and for many, the main one.
The Springer was very famous when it first came out, just like the Raptor. This is why you can unlock it later in End of Dragons. Not many people will use this hopping guy as their main mount because it moves more slowly than most of them, but its real strength is its ability to make you fly.
Before flying dragons, everyone was jumping around with the Springer to try to break maps and get into places that aren’t usually open to them. Not only can this mount move, but it also has one of the best fighting skills of any mount. Any enemy that gets crushed under this bunny’s belly will be knocked down.
The Griffon is a Legendary mount, and the Roller Beetle is more like an Ascended mount. It takes a little more time and gold to get than the higher-tier mounts, but it’s not as easy as double-clicking. Still, the Beetle would be worth it even if it was just as hard to get or stronger.
There’s not much use for this bug, and it won’t get you anywhere that other rides can’t. However, it is very fast. We had to add new physics to the engine to get this to work, and there are special sports that need it. It will make you want to ride a motorbike at over the speed limit and drift around every turn. This would be number one if we only ranked by how fun it is.
As the clear king of the sea, the Skimmer is the best way to get across bodies of water. This mantaray’s real strength is getting across rivers that were hard to swim through in the past. It was also made to deal with quicksand and other dangerous landscapes. It won’t go as fast on land, but it speeds up in shallow water like ponds.
But the Skimmer didn’t become king of the sea until its mastery line got a rare boost. Once you finish it, this creature will be able to take you underwater. Even though playing Guild Wars 2 underwater is very different, being able to dash through it is very helpful.
The Siege Turtle had to be very good since it was the only new mount in End of Dragons. It was worth it, too. It goes pretty fast and can even go underwater. It also has a rocket jump that lets it get around most obstacles. There are other mounts that can do those things better, but this one can do them all, which makes it a great main mount.
Having two player mounts, though, is what makes it so appealing. A lot of Basket Random players play by themselves, but those who don’t have the Turtle, which is a mighty weapon, to help them out. Guns that do a lot of damage can be fired by the second player. Clearing enemy camps with the Turtle is more enjoyable because you won’t have to mount while fighting.
The Skyscale is the best mount in Guild Wars 2. It was made through a difficult magical process. In the end, it all comes down to the fact that it flies. Though it’s not quite the same as flying in World of Warcraft, the way the maps are set up in Guild Wars 2 makes it feel like it.
The Skyscale can take you anywhere, and no other mount can go where it can. This makes it the most sought-after mount. During Path of Fire, it was certainly legendary hard to get. In Secrets of the Obscure, it is not only easy to get, but it also gives you more power. It’s hard to imagine a time when a new animal takes this flying dragon’s place.
